Optional Rule Variant: Duel Of Magicians
The Duel of Magicians game variant is an optional rule set designed to make the traditional two-player games more tense and diverse.
Two new game elements are used in the Duel of Magicians:
- Turn Setup cards
- Performance cards with gray Trick Markers printed on them
The following changes apply to the base game rules:
Create a deck with five (base game) or seven (Dark Alley) face-up Turn Setup cards and place them next to the Main Game Board.
Use the Performance cards with gray Trick Markers printed on them to create the Performance Deck.
After rolling the Downtown dice, place the top card of the Turn Setup card deck next to the deck. Based on the layout printed on the card, cover 2 slots in the Downtown, Market Row and Dark Alley, and 2 Weekdays in the Theater using the face-down wooden disks of leftover player colors.
This way, there will be different Character slots and Weekdays available each turn, and, since players can always see the upcoming card, they can plan one turn ahead.
Players may now create Links with the 'neutral', gray Trick Markers printed on the Performance cards by default.
